I has a "well DUH!" moment over this because I never noticed the
function, so I started tinkering around with it.  If there is a
rectangular selection on the canvas, the area selected by the
perspective tool conforms to the selection when resampled.  The tool
options dialog dock for Rectangular Select has settings for
adjusting the size and position of the selection in pixels.

I can't believe the amount of time I have wasted squaring up
photographed or scanned rectangular objects "by hand."  But I love
it when posters like Øyvind point out things that should have been
obvious to me - better to learn late than never!
